Turning Point has spent the last 12 years forging its reputation as the national leader in gender/age-specific programming for young men who have been derailed by addiction and co-occuring disorders. Through a seamless integration of clinical best practices, life skills training, academic/vocational planning, recreational activities, and social development, Turning Point has redefined the meaning of a successful treatment outcome for young men. While in treatment, Turning Point clients resume the pursuit of age-appropriate developmental milestones, re-launching on their journey toward autonomy and self-sufficiency. Additionally, a wide range of recreational activities and events keep Turning Point clients engaged in treatment and forging meaningful friendships.
